Keeping you informed

We want to keep parents informed of their child's progress, and about other activities in school. We recognise that good communication benefits the whole school community.

In this section you will find information about everything that is happening in and outside of our school as well as photographs and videos of our amazing children in action.

  • Y2 Road Safety Workshop

    Published 14/02/20

    On Tuesday 4th February, Kirklees Road Safety trainers came into school to deliver pedestrian training to the Year 2 children, to help them begin to learn and understand important road safety skills.

    The trainers set the hall up as a basic road layout in order to develop the skills and awareness required for young children to cope with today's traffic.  The children were taught how to practice crossing the road and staying safe.  They learnt about the key messages of holding hands with adults, stopping at the kerb and looking and listening for traffic before crossing a road.

  • Mathionaire

    Published 14/02/20

    In the week beginning Monday 3rd February, the school held an annual ”Mathionaire” competition for the children. The children who were chosen to participate were given specific areas of maths to revisit in advance. On the days, children were given random combinations of questions to calculate using their prior knowledge. There were 16 questions altogether for each year group. Each child faced 4 questions which were more challenging as they advanced. The first set of questions were worth 1 housepoint, 2nd = 3 housepoints, 3rd = 5 housepoints and 4th = 10 housepoints. The questions were read out to the children and they could use their whiteboards to calculate these. Children were also able to use two lifelines – 1) ask a teacher (method only) 2) 50/50. We aimed to have a champion house, which was yellow house with 110 points. Overall, all the children prepared fantastically well. I would like to thank all the children, parents and teachers for helping the children to prepare and learn these words - fantastic!
